    Is it possible to boost a new 2020 RockShock Pike 29" to 160mm?

    Hi,

    I need a 29" 160 mm fork and I want a 2020 RockShox Pike Ultimate RC2. My weight is 65 kg and I'm sure that the rigidity and strength of the Pike will be enough for me.

    Can I install a 160 mm air shaft on this fork? Will the legs and charger cartridge length be enough?

    Product page shows a Pike ultimate at 160mm - why don't you just order a 160mm if you want the Pike Ultimate?

    or just buy the appropriate airshaft

    I don't know where you are located, but here's the Asian and European contact information:

    Curious, why can't you call them?
